I’m flying to Tucson, Tucson, Tucson, Arizona
I’m flying to Tucson…
(to the tune of I’m going to Graceland…)
That reminds me, I haven’t done a song in awhile. Hmmm…why don’t you guys make a few requests so I have something to think on when I get back? Actually, my reading has been a bit slow lately, so if there’s anything else you’d like me to blabber on about in a post (Trish, I promise I will write a post on the photography workshop…someday), I’d welcome any ideas. And yes, you’ll be hearing all about Tucson at some point.
I told Alyce that my brain is fried, so I’ll probably be especially fizzy this weekend. Either that, or I’ll be totally flat. But OJ has noted that Starbucks is having their treat receipt promotion (or whatever it’s called this go around), so I might just make it through the weekend fueled by caffeine. Could be entertaining…especially since I’m not on caffeine right now, so just think what I’d be like if there was caffeine in my system. I know…scary.
With the exception of my People’s Readalong post for Monday, I’m all out of prescheduled posts, so it’s gonna be mighty quiet around here for the next week. I get home Monday night (unless I get eaten by one of those freaky cacti they’ve got in Tucson) and go straight back to the 4-10s (ten hour work days) on Tuesday, so there won’t be much time for blogging ’til next weekend. And yes, I heard that sigh of relief. After this post, I’m sure you’re all glad that there will be silence.
Have I ever mentioned I love maps? When I was a kid, I used to tack up the National Geographic maps on the walls of my bedroom (what a dork). So I am seriously lusting after this puppy. Isn’t that the coolest thing ever? (Umm, yeah…short attention span. I might be doing a little internet surfing in between paragraphs.)
I’m trying not to take along a bunch of books on this trip because 1) I’ll only be gone for four days and 2) hello, I’m going to a Book Festival…I know I’ll be buying some books there. But I have Cloud Atlas in my bag (I’m bound and determined to put a serious dent in that book this weekend), as well as The Wave (because I’ve been meaning to read it for the past year and also because the author will be at the TFOB). And I just downloaded The Sense of an Ending to my iPad because 1) everyone is reading it and I’m easily influenced like that and 2) it’s short, so if Cloud Atlas is overwhelming it’ll be a good diversion. Three books isn’t that bad. Right??
Now that I’ve exhausted myself and probably you all with my non-caffeine fueled ramblings, I’m off to finish packing and hit the road (or would that be hit the air?).
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
